If you're (like me) a die-hard Rush fan, you'll be weeping at the end. Can't help feeling that Lifeson and Lee are not at all happy about the end of touring days for Rush. At the same time one can understand why Peart has hung up his tour cymbals. There is no easy way to play a Rush song, let alone perform like an octopus on speed for 3 hours at 63! Generally the movie is a good insight into the work it takes to put on a show, and the groundhog-day affect it has on the band and crew. Beautifully shot and edited, with clips of the band throughout all their stages (bad hair, dreadful 80s clothes et al). My only "negative" viewpoint: Cant help feeling this "film" was rush-released a bit. (no pun intended) It seems like Alex and Geddy are doing a "see how sad people are Neil? See what you're quitting?". Additionally, they might also have touched on "hey fans, we might have stopped touring, but we will still keep writing and recording!"..but they didn't. I think if you put the three boys in a car together now there would be deadly silence as each one just stares out the window. I don't think we've heard the last of this. Prediction: More albums....the odd one-off show. We shall watch and pray....
